    Aren't those numbers a bit too low for notebooks? only 1.06GHz? Me want some benchies.

    Those are Core i5/i7 chips with integrated memory controllers and graphics. That makes them significantly faster per clock than Core2 chips. Low clock speed is a necessity for low-power ultraportables. These aren't for mainstream notebooks, Intel has other power-hungry mobile chips that are cheaper.
